trapper09, 07 Sep 2020This is the end for HuaweiI hope so. It should also be named as ConflictOS instead. The words Harmony and China don't go along well.

Tip: you c... moreFood for thought - You mentioned PRISM, Boundless informant etc, all systems that the US uses..its common knowlege for security enthusiasts now...but what about China, they don't spy on anyone ? Everyone spys on everyone..In the US, democracy allows them to atleast know about this stuff gradually & deal with it. China is so opaque - you won't even be able to find out what systems they use to spy & do things like X!ji@ng- then you have the guts to call the Chinese way better than other Western countries..
Anonymous, 07 Sep 2020who will buy that instead of android & ios ?!!!The real question is "WHY?". Why would people move to a new OS with a limited app gallery and probably a lot of Chinese market-oriented apps?
The mass majority of people are basic users with very limited skills who can barely migrate data when switching from one phone to another let alone switch to a new unknown OS which will probably require a lot of tinkering and where most of the knowledge in issue solving will be in Chinese.
This will be a real saver for Huawei in the Chinese market and getting Chinese developers onboard in creating apps will not be a problem but it will be a very different ball game with the consumers and developers from Europe, the US market will probably be out of the question to even consider in investing in marketing and trying to sell phones there.
Unless you are a tech geek eager to learn Chinese I'm not seeing anyone else jump on board with this. Sure, there will probably be a few who will buy into this but after they will hit a snag in doing some basic operations and find no support from the online community they will probably sell the phones for pennies on ebay and move back to IOS or Google supported Andorid phones.
Boggy-Stefy, 07 Sep 2020There is still long way to go. I actually wanted to buy the P40 Lite some time ago, but after ... moreAs a European I will use that App gallery all day. Every app can be installed in 5 min.
I'm really regretting buying their Nova 3i. Just a few days after it was released, they'd then released their better phone at almost the same price, Honor Play. After some short few months, I decided to sell this but no one buys it anymore since they cut the price largely just after some few weeks.
Now I'm currently stuck with this phone and has been really pissed because they're too persistent on pushing their annoying AppGallery and other updates every now and then
Will never buy again from this brand. They release phones like weekly and their prices devaluate very quickly. So far, this has been my greatest buyer's remorse.
Boggy-Stefy, 07 Sep 2020Lol.
Everyone is spying on you one way or another. As long as you have internet and account/... moreShow me believable articles or instances where Huawei is spying in other countries. Tip: you can't. All you get is their social credit system and their firewall, both of which are meant for Chinese residents only. Nothing about Huawei, just some claims that they use their equipment to spy on people. Guess who made these claims? You guessed it, our butthurt friends the americans.
Now, show me believable articles or instances where any american company is spying or taking part in spying in other countries. You get Google/Apple/Netflix/Microsoft/Facebook/literally every major american company being known to collect and sell user data, PRISM - a global surveillance program by the NSA, Boundless Informant - yet another global surveillance program by the NSA, XKEYSCORE - oh look at that what do you know it's only another global surveillance program by our good-natured oh-so-honest folks at the NSA. Oh, and let's not forget all of the leaks provided to us by Snowden, who has somehow become conveniently forgotten by american citizens. Still the list goes on.
Now tell me that american companies are the "good" ones. If you're a good little american who has never travelled abroad, what can China do with your personal data? Make fake profiles on websites you'd never use, using your name? Conduct illegal business offline using your name? The airlines would have proof you've never flown abroad. Your own government's vast information about you would also know that you've never flown abroad.
Yesssss... Finally 💢💪🏻
I waited for this, since the first time we heard about it.
I have NO problem at all saying goodbye to US Android, even im living in Denmark.
And ofc other Chinese over time will follow and support Harmony if it good. No Chinese firm will no lo ger trust the hypocrite US government anymore, like many other countries the last couple of years.
Some of the best flagship with a 3rd OS sooo nice, finally something new.
Would never go back to Apple again, been there done that. But i craving for something new, feel Android is same same and it is ofc, but mostly we see minor boring updates.
Some talk about Microsoft and their OS adventure, but times are different now and theres a huge opposition vs US, also outside China. So it wil get lots of support, from EU to for sure.
It's a great day 😃🤗

Alex 94, 07 Sep 2020They already create App galery, which contain many popular aps. More than a million developers... moreThere is still long way to go. I actually wanted to buy the P40 Lite some time ago, but after seeing some reviews on internet about how many workarounds you need to do, I said no way.
The average person doesn't want to do workarounds on their phones. They want to buy the phone, put the sim in and start using it.
For example, for me an European, I do not want to enter on their app store and start seeing all this Chinese apps or all that Chinese language in there. I want to look on a Samsung or Sony phone and then on a Huawei phone and be able to have the same apps instantly. If this will not happen, no way I am buying a Huawei phone.
kiasunkiasi, 07 Sep 2020looking forward to try it out as a backup phone... if it's good, then bye bye to spying G... moreLol.
Everyone is spying on you one way or another. As long as you have internet and account/accounts your personal data is long gone.
No matter Huawei, Google, Apple, they are all in the same boat. Just the fanboy-ism mentality will make people trust one or other. But, in the end they are collecting your data.
Of course, some companies spy on you more than others. But thinking that Huawei is one of the good companies, well..good luck with that. lol.

I liked very much Windows phones back in the day. And I known a lot of people with Windows phones back then too. But, because the developers didn't jumped ship (because money), then all the people just slowly let Windows phones go, including me.
This could easily happen to Huawei too.
A smartphone without necessary apps is just a normal phone. And Apple and Google know this all to well.
In this times, for a new OS to succeed, it needs at least couple of years. I am afraid, people nowadays do not have the patience to wait that long.
galaxya71user, 07 Sep 2020Finally. I hope it's not just a forked version of Android.They now want to be free from google. That ban just helped them to force developers to create something new. Os is the only thing which keeps US companies in lives. If that fall, we will see completely new tech world.
galaxya71user, 07 Sep 2020Finally. I hope it's not just a forked version of Android.Supposedly it's a completely new OS built from scratch, not even based on Linux kernel. The hype will be that it's faster than Android, which would make sense as the latter is mature product probably laden with legacy/junk codes carried over from one version to another.
Anonymous, 07 Sep 2020Either that or China exclusive only.What do u expect, its actually a forked Android version.. They can't start something from the scratch or build something differently.. Can't u see their UI is also copied from IOS
Nothing special just basically an Android without GMS so whats the hype about the OS.. its not and entire new or different Os like IOS or Blackberry
looking forward to try it out as a backup phone... if it's good, then bye bye to spying Google...
Huawei might get a lot of market share with this OS by selling it in mainland China. Google is banned there and 'non-tech people' wouldn't know how to sideload them anyway.
